About Bob the Angry Flower
Stephen Notley's Bob the Angry Flower is a weekly alternative strip about a walking talking flower who feels ALL the emotions, not just rage. Debuting in 1992, Bob has battled Gamera, bad punctuation, Dick Cheney's disembodied heart, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, hamster-dropping villain Hamsterfall, US Senator Ted Cruz, vengeful Geat Rothgar, celebrated mathematician Roger Penrose, his own narrator and, of course, the clanking, failed mechanisms of the human heart. Taking on such disparate topics as pop-culture sendups, religious contradictions and the inadequacy of soy milk to those truly devoted to the real thing, Bob's never-ending quest to get super mad at stuff shows no sign of ending or even slowing down.
Like all good things, Stephen Notley originated in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Being wise, he soon grasped that cartooning was the Art of all Arts and, groping blindly for that glorious golden ring, he drew cartoons for the University of Alberta student newspaper The Gateway. Deriving satisfaction therefrom, he continued to draw these silly toons, vowing to "repeat until dead." 30-odd years later he's still at it, and while he eventually bounced from his home and native land to seek his fortune in sunny Seattle writing and designing goofy nonsense for PopCap Games, he's still inflicting Bob the Angry Flower cartoons on the world at the rate of one per week and intends to do so as long as the flesh co-operates. So, basically forever.
